Happy Holidays to all, and for those who celebrate, Merry Christmas! Chances are, you're spending this weekend like we are - decking the halls and prepping for your holiday feast.

If you are being hosted rather than hosting, check out this winning no-cook hors d'oeuvre idea that comes together quickly HEREAs you know by now, we'll be hosting our annual multi-course Italian Feast of the 7 Fishes. It's looking like we are actually going to make only 6, to be sure our small group of guests has room for dessert. Good luck with all your prepping, and we wish you and yours a joyous holiday and happy New Year! Tune in next time for the full report from our Christmas Eve Feast - including wine pairings and prep tips.  I'll leave you today with an ingenious and easy idea if you're looking for some last minute festive decor that won' t break the bank. All you need to make our beautiful Holiday Centerpiece is:
1-2 packages fresh Cranberries
A decorative Bowl
To Assemble: 
Simply place your Candles in the Bowl, and arrange Cranberries to your desired height around them. Place the Bowl where you would like it to be displayed, and fill with Water slowly, using a watering can. 
Special thanks to my mom-in-law for this great idea!

  1. Thanks so much!! I just ran out to buy some cranberries for this. It's a good idea and just in time.. I was scratching my head about what to put on my buffet for color. I have a ton of poinsettia around and this will add to them nicely.
